Hello All,

Wow...I've been away far too long from the forum. There's been a whole bunch of things happening in my life lately and I've missed this post. I'll moving to Tampa, Florida at the end of next month and I've been getting ready for the BIG CHANGE. A very strange thing happened to me on Monday 3-14-2005. Literally, out of the blue I get a phone call from two old friends and business partners from 7 years ago. So, I ended up meeting with them and catching up on old times. It turns out that they have some opportunity here in Pittsburgh for me.

But to be quite honest folks, I'm pretty much over my old dealings with the entertainment business and these two particular people. People grow and move on, and that's pretty much how I feel internally...I've closed that chapter a long, long, long time ago...7 years. But, being a person who never wants to shut opportunity or people out I consulted the Yi and this is what I got, and I need some major help since I haven't cast in about a month!!!!

Question:

"What will happen if I choose to stay here in Pittsburgh and work with the guys at *** again?"

Answer:

Primary hex# 56 changing into hex# 45

changing lines: 9 at 3rd, 6 at 5th, 9 at top

What I really have a hard time with is when the Yi gives me all these contrasting changing lines in the reading. The commentaries for all these lines are sooo different. From 9 at 3rd I get "o.k., this really is NOT cool, don't get back involved. But then in 6 at 5th, it's totally the opposite. 9 at top- yes, I'm losing my rsting place...I'm moving...o.k., I get that but I don't fully understand the commentary on the lin here? Well, actually I don't fully "hear" what Yi is saying to me.

Can some of you please share your insight with me? If this is a hell of an opportunity, and the Yi is telling me that this could be very healthy for me...I'm missing it!?!?!! I just look, but I'm not seeing.

Thanks,

grnd

Hi Grnd,

I read thru the lines, i think it is a matter of how you look at this offer which is the key point here.

Some points to consider:
What is Tampa, Florida means to you?
Why you intend to move there at the first place?

Then, perhaps that could help you to read the lines better.

Hi Grndultimte,

You indicate that you haven't consulted the Yi for some time, so it may be that the answer is a reflection of your plans to move instead of a response to your original question. If you feel uncertain with 3 changing lines you may want to try a method that will help you to focus in on one line. According to some, when 3 lines are changing the middle line is chosen.

Hi Grndultimte and all,
56 seems related to your plan of moving, I agree with Alan and Yly2pg1.

You should tell us a bit more about Tampa, 56.5 seems to indicate there is a chance of success there, but also dangers (56.6, 56.3), and 45 could be related to the chance of staying in Pittsburgh with your old friends.
56.3, in Lise's translation could be a hint of being resolute:
9 at 3: The troops burn their lodgings, lose their boy-servants. Determination danger.
When a dangerous task has to be accomplished, it is better to burn one?s ships. Fear is strong, but without a refuge it is easier to cope with. When troops start marching to the war, they remove their camp, so the decision is definite.

56.6 could also mean that there is indeed a risk of a loss (lost opportunity in pittsburgh?) going away, so please give us some more info in order to help you.

Peace
Paolo

Hey everyone,

Sorry. Let me give more detail about Tampa. Prior to my decision to move I was both looking for employment here in Pittsburgh and another place to live. I was getting nowhere. I was following up with employer after employer, no returned phone calls or emails. The same was true on the apartment hunting side...nothing. I took these as signs that I'm pressing instead of allowing. I felt that perhaps a change was needed. It just so happend at the same time (about 2 months ago), my sister who lives in Tampa was looking for a new place to live...her apartments are being made into condo's. She asked if I would like to move to Florida then. I was quite against it because I felt that that would be a wrong move, and taking me further away from my path. After some thought, I realized that this situation presented itself as opportunity. In alot of ways there really isn't anything keeping me here in Pittsburgh- I'm single, no children, no business here, etc,. I also thought the change would be nice for me right now- new town, new relationships, closer to mom & dad, the beach, ocean, sun.

"What is Tampa, Florida means to you? "

Tampa means change for me right now. With hopes of growth in my character and spirit. It represents a challenge for me. All my life, I've never just decided to pick up and move on like this, and now I'm looking forward to the move. Tampa represents family for me. I'll be living with my sister for a while, and I'll be about two hours away from my mom & dad...who I miss a great deal. I also believe this move instrumental in helping me with my relationship with my sister. Over the years I've lost that closeness I once had with her.

The Pittsburgh opportunity:

The guys I was in business with years ago were partners and friends. That was a very painful time in my life, and perhaps the pain is what my mind is still holding onto. Again, I never considered ever going back into business with these guys, or associating with them. I've lost touch with them over the years. I don't know know who they are anymore. I feel as if being reaquainted with an old girlfriend and remembering the good times and the painful times. The thought of dating again crosses my mind. The nostalgia wears off, and one must consider if they really want to get involved once again, and dat familiarity?

I hope this clear up any confusion. If everyone needs more details please let me know. Thanks Yly2pg1, I never even thought of asking myself what Tampa means to me personally.

Could the hexigram represent your offer of employment.56 -5
56 -3 and 56-6 are extreem reactions.possible outcome if you are not sincere in your actions.Perhaps your desire to move is at the back of your mind.It could then be a reason for your leaving your situation prematurely if you remain and accept the offer.I think it is a difficult interpritation on the whole.

Hi Grnd,

If hex 56 and the resulting hex 45 are considered as representing your plans to move, and hex 12 as representing the option of staying where you are, you may have what you need to decide. Perhaps your instincts are leaning in this direction also.

Grnd, my first instinct in your reading was :

56.3 you decide to move on, and it's time.

56.5 you get an interesting offer as you are contemplating this move to tampa; it sounds pretty good..

56.6 but that old nest is burnt up, it really is time to go.

56> 45 get your act togther and take it on the road.
ON THE OTHER HAND.....does it say that your plans to move disintegrate because you have gotten a great offer of a new resting place?

Actually, the Yi almost seems to be just reflecting your current situation and feelings.

it really is a matter of your gut instinct as to what comes next.

G, emotionally, do you take that this is a kind of wandering (56)?

The theme of 56 is transitioning safely, and fortifying for the journey, as in LiSe?s itinerate troops. 45 is pulling together the resources you will need for the journey. Since the destination isn?t yet firm in your mind (not just geographically), then your reading will reflect that.

I concur pretty much with Jeanie?s interpretation, except that I?d say that line 6 warns of over exuberance and careless dealings.

Sometimes, it is interesting to look into why Yi is giving constrasting changing lines.

When I read into 56.3.5.6, the theme here is 56. It signifies a background of transitional journey? That is why I ask the initial intention to go to Tampa, Florida. A place would mean a certain significance to a person, especially so to a person who is on a journey.

While line 3 is about the past journey until now, Yi does indicate there is potential opportunity here in Pittsburgh which is line 5.

Line 6? Only G can decide his destination.
You are the one who know what you really want in the journey of life.

Grnd, allow spontainety into you life and follow it into another world. It has ben a mantra for me and only on an odd occasion have I been disappointed or sad I followed my intuition. As long as you are not leaving something you desire for an unknown you will find adventure, not that you made a mistake.

If there were no changing lines then the context is 11 - a focus on mediation. This activity is in some way threatening belief systems such that one is neutralising these 'attacks', even if 'friendly'.

The indication is there is a lack of trust present, a perceived threat where one can be betrayed and so one is defencive. The next hexagram along is 15 - keep words close to the facts, look out for too much emphasis on 'highs and lows' ;-)

Hi Grand

I have to agree with Jeanystar's reading. And if you move to Tampa we'll be next door neighbors.

Hey All!!!!!

You know, it's really good to hear from all of you. Especially my regular mentors (you know who you are)...thank you very, very, very much. Interesting LoD:

"The indication is there is a lack of trust present, a perceived threat where one can be betrayed and so one is defencive. The next hexagram along is 15 - keep words close to the facts, look out for too much emphasis on 'highs and lows' ;-)"

I can most certainly agree about the trust issue with the guys here in Pittsburgh. Not that they ever screwed me out of $, or in any of our business dealings, but years ago I had one vision and they another. After a while it was apparent that I was the odd-man out. Very painful for me emotionally. But yes Jeanystar, as always my dear YOU ROCK!!!! How simple the answer? That's exactly what the Yi is reflecting for me...huh. So, thanks again to all of you, and looks like Gene and I are going to be neighbors!!!!
